Description: last week when I saw Randy Bridge at the field and he had the fishing line switch deal. I thought it was kinda weird. Keep in mind it was my first time seeing Pylon Racers in person. So after seeing your pics Fizz, I thought it would look nice not having a switch mounted on the fuse.

Thanks Barry. Except for the fact that I need a new wheel. I droped a little CA on it and it pretty much destroyed it.

I don't use the ball bearing wheels but, spray a little CA release into the bearing and wait a bit and see if it frees up. If it does follow it up with a bit of alcohol and then oil. Dennis has great wheels and axles for about $12/pr.

I put some CA debonder on it and it started eating the material. The wheels I have are that the wheel sits over the metal hub and it spins around the hub.

I understand. I got some locktite on mine and they didn't want to turn so I used a bit of light oil on them and they freed right up. I usually put a couple drops of fuel on them when i am fueling up for a heat and they run nice and smooth but, because they are bushing that only lasts one or two heats and if I land in the dirt I have to make sure they are cleaned and lubed before the next heat.

This is my Ready to cover version that I bought. Unfortunately my other one took a Dirt Nap a couple weeks ago. Still not sure what happened. Started my turn around #1 when it didn't want to stop the left roll. It hit the ground so hard that I had to pull the engine out of the dirt. Well that engine has been test run on the bench and is now in this Plane and will maiden some time this week.

Maiden flight this morning. Very nervous. Once I got er up. Didn't take much trim. Was flying around on half throttle for a minute and then I let her loose. Crazy Fast ! I think this one is faster than the last one. Flew two times. Blew the runway both times. Damn she glides. I'm pumped and can't wait to Race !
I want to thank all the guys that gave me tips and info. I appreciate all y'all.
